Kitchen No No's!

January 16th, 2009 at 02:52 pm

Wow more WORK PLACE DRAMA! Ok someone is stealing LARGE amounts of food from our kitchen! Weird! Yes that is right. Someone is so darn desperate...hates to grocery shop or who runs a black market on groceries! So NOW we are not allowed to get coffee or to bum a spoon or eat any of the soup they are going to throw away. We are not even allowed to set foot in the kitchen. One of the housekeepers asks for free food all the time....so I think she may to blame. She is bold and a loud mouth--she demands food for free. It is certainly odd and weird.

Side note.....break room at work has no heater and it is freezing....so I ate my lunch in another place in the building and the manager kicked me out. When I asked her nicely and point blankly but with some clarity---- "where CAN I take my break and eat my lunch???" She said...gee I don't know and walked away....so I ate my lunch standing up in the laundry center. Now---is that weird??? I have a pretty good feeling that my workplace is really getting strange. Odd times make for odd working situations. Oh by the way my manager told me she had been yelled at all week and was sick of it....so what does that have to do with me wanting to eat my lunch?? Gosh I wish I was the boss....I would love to run the place with an eye on people and making things run more smoothly.

Co-worker needed some hours her little one has been sick and she missed a ton of work this week. I offered her my Saturday to work. I gave up 5 hours for her to earn some money. I decided it was worth it. I can relax and recharge and stay home! I will sacrifice in other areas to make up the loss of money.

We had no school on Thursday and Friday due to sub zero freezing weather. We are off on Monday as well. YAHOO!

    that was very nice of you to give the other woman hours.

    Very generous of you for giving the hours to the woman that needed them. I didn't read back far enough to see what type of work you do, but it does seem a little inhumane to have an unheated break room in sub-zero temps. Where do others eat their lunch? Does the manager have an office? Maybe you could plop down in there with lunch since she didn't have any ideas. What's next, eating in the bathroom?

    Regarding the food thief. It seems obvious it might be the one that demands freebies, but looking beyond the obvious it could be someone else hoping she will get blamed.

    Giving up some hours for another. I love you for it and I know your co-worker does to. Giving of yourself for someone else is God's grace visible. God bless you.

    Wait a minute. I'm sure there is an OSHA regulation that a business has to provide a break area, and if the workplace requires you to take a lunch (Federal law), they have to give you a place to eat it. I think your place of work is breaking at least one law here.

    That was very nice of you. Believe me, you will be rewarded in more ways than one

    Ooh - good karma! It will come back to you - hopefully in the form of a warm eating place?? Smile
